The Camps School
Our project returned to its mission of teaching the displaced children with the beginning of the school year in 2010. Most of the camps’ children don’t go to school because of poverty, changing in dialect at school and the condescension in dealing with children from the camps. The first school was located near Rasem Atahin in Kanaker near Damascus. The 15-vounteers teamwork provided an educational program including learning through playing and making the children aware about personal hygiene and the surrounding community. Despite the lack of our experience in the methods of education, we tried to invent our own methods. We’ve divided the children into two parts “who are going to school and who are not” in addition to the age of them. Moreover, every week we provided them with stationary as a bonus. A month after, a new team began to care about children in a camp nearby Sasa, so we had two schools in two camps and more than 80 children benefit from this campaign.
